U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio has called for special climate envoy, and former Democratic senator, John Kerry to be fired for coddling the communists who run the Chinese government.
“For weeks, rumors have swirled in Washington about President Joe Biden’s climate czar John Kerry and his opposition to taking concrete action against the Chinese Communist Party’s use of slave labor,” the Republican senator wrote in a recent opinion article for Fox News.
“Now, we may have an answer about his reluctance to take action: according to a new report, Kerry and his wife have at least $1 million invested in a Chinese investment group called Hillhouse China Value Fund L.P.”
Hillhouse, Rubio noted, is a “top shareholder” in a Chinese tech firm called YITU Technology. The Trump administration had blacklisted YITU in 2019 for aiding “the surveillance, detention, and repression of Uyghurs and others.”
“In other words,” the senator added, “Kerry appears to be profiting from slave labor.”
Continuing, Rubio added, “President Biden now has a choice: stand by the man profiting from slave labor or fire him.”
“It should be an easy choice, but the Biden administration and some Democrats are so desperate for a climate deal with the Chinese Communist Party that they are willing to ignore the regime’s use of slave labor.”
This reluctance, said Rubio, puts Biden in league with companies like Nike, Apple, and Amazon, which profit off cheap, even slave, labor, but do nothing to denounce the Chinese government for it – something even U.S. labor unions are doing.
“Nothing is going right for President Biden or our nation lately,” added Rubio.
“Gas prices are surging. Groceries are more expensive. Supply chains are bottlenecked. Divisive Marxist policies are tearing our communities apart. We’ve been embarrassed on the world stage thanks to Biden’s Afghanistan debacle. And now, the president’s top climate adviser is profiting from slave labor.”
Biden must heed the AFL-CIO’s demand for “commonsense” action on dealing with China, Rubio noted.
“The first step is to fire John Kerry as climate czar. And then, instead of relying on a genocidal regime that hates America, the Biden administration should focus on building up domestic production to create good jobs in America,” he concluded.
“Biden needs to decide where he stands and who he is fighting for. Right now, his silence is deafening, and it is giving cover to the Marxists in both America and in China. Meanwhile, American workers and families continue to suffer.”
